Gifts in Wills
It’s Remember a Charity Week!
Celebrating its 12th year, this week is Remember A Charity Week (6-12 September). Hft is proud to be joining over 200 charities across the country to celebrate all the amazing individuals who support our vital services by leaving a gift to charity in their Will.
Gifts in Wills are hugely important in funding our work at Hft, and supports many of our services. As well as services like Luv2meetU and the FCSS, gifts in Wills underpin all areas of support across Hft – wherever the need is greatest.
The aim of the week is to highlight that anyone can leave a legacy gift and “pass on something wonderful” once their loved ones are taken care of. No matter how big or small, every gift counts and has a tremendous impact on the people we support.
What would you like to protect?
Caring for over 2,500 people and employing 3,000 staff, as a charity in the underfunded and under resourced social care system is hugely challenging. That’s likely never to change.
If you decide to leave a gift in your Will, you can help provide services that tackle the everyday challenges that people with a learning disability and their families face. Whether the people we support are feeling socially isolated, need care to manage physical health conditions, or if our family carers need help and support.
